One of the biggest injury risks in the workplace is sitting in front of a computer. Poor workstation design and use can contribute to postural syndromes and repetitive strain injuries (RSIs). We use the same principles embraced in our manual handling packages to help employees stay healthy at their desks.
The training session touches on nutrition & hydration, warm-up and stretching exercises, bending & reaching patterns and most importantly, effective workstation set-up. Manual handling principles are related to office-based tasks, such as reaching under desks and lifting copying paper. All of these principles are described from an anatomical and physiological point of view, so that employees start to understand their bodies, and can then take control of their own health.
